Young Leadership Council and Greater New Orleans Foundation Partner for Get Down & GiveNOLA at YLC Wednesday at the Square
NEW ORLEANS – On Wednesday, May 1, the Young Leadership Council (YLC) and Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF) will launch Get Down & GiveNOLA at YLC Wednesday at the Square, a partnership to mobilize and inspire a new wave of donors at YLC’s annual Wednesday at the Square concert series. The event happens from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Lafayette Square in the Central Business District.
Additional details were shared in a press release.
During the pair of GiveNOLA events, YLC and Greater New Orleans Foundation will prove that everyone can make a difference, and harness the power of music to unite the community behind a common cause: multiplying our impact by giving together.
While enjoying rhythms from Deacon John and Trumpet Mafia, guests will be able to pre-schedule GiveNOLA Day donations at giving stations located throughout Lafayette Square.
GiveNOLA Day, an initiative of the Greater New Orleans Foundation, is a one-day online giving event. For 24 hours, philanthropists can support their favorite local causes by donating to one or more of 700 plus participating nonprofit organizations. Donations can be made through givenola.org.
During GiveNOLA Day's inaugural year, more than $2.2 million was raised for more than 300 participating nonprofits from more than 19,000 donors. In 2018, its fifth year, $5.6 million was raised from over 48,000 gifts for 765 nonprofits. The goal is to raise $50,000 in pre-scheduled donations at the May 1 Get Down & GiveNOLA event.
